Cabin Fever 2 - 3
Hatchet - 7
Legion - 7
Species- 9
30 days of night - 8
Igor - 7
Lifeforce - 9

Well, my wifey went out for a few hours, so it gave me a chance to watch a second movie today. I decided to go for a real classic that i havent watched in quite a while, UNDERWORLD.

This is a great movie. Interesting plot with the war between the Vampires and Lycans, great great sets and photography, a lot of action, this is a very visual movie. Tremendous sound too, this is one to really have the sound turned up on. Really enjoyed it a lot. I guess its the best movie i have watched so far this month, the first one to surpass Grotesque. Also, in the past i have said that 30 Days of Night was my favorite vampire movie, well i had forgotten about Underworld, as Underworld to me is the best vampire movie.

My list so far is, with ratings on a 1-10 scale:

1 - Grotesque - 9+
2 - MOH Haeckels Tale - 5
3 - MOH Jenifer - 7
4 - MOH Pick Me Up - 4
5 - Murder-Set-Pieces - 7+
6 - MOH Dance Of The Dead - 4
7 - MOH The Screwfly Solution - 5
8 - MOH Right To Die - 7
9 - Underworld - 9++

Yankeeman-

Make sure you give MoH: Family and MoH: Cigarette burns a go. They are easily by default the best ones.

Pick me up deserves more than a 4/10! It's very entertaining, but it's not a top dog MoH by any means. I also thought Jennifer was good, as did you. Hate to say it, but she's hot.

I would hit it. Maybe.

We all have different taste, i can see where Pick Me Up can be liked a lot, i think i did score that a little low. Hard to put actual scores on movies!!!!!

Jennifer, yes, hit it, i would!!!!

I dont know if i have seen Family, but yes to Cigarette Burns. I own Cigarette Burns, but have seen it about a month ago so i didnt watch it this month, but its really one of the best, totally makes you wonder about that film everyone is looking for.

To me though, the best MOH is IMPRINT. I have that and have watched it many many times. Torture, abortion, floating fetuses, a bizarre concept at the end, Imprint has it all. I highly reccomment both Cigarette Burns and Imprint to any here who has not seen them.
post #846 of 9795
You can't really say anything else until you've seen MoH Family.

It's that highly considered. Trust me.

In-fact, Family is on-par with Cigarette burns. Those two lead the pack. I'll have to check out Imprint, as long as it's not torture porn Rob Zombie trash.
post #847 of 9795
Imprint is NOT torture-porn, its unique, way out there, and quite an experience. Does not have the Rob Zombie look to it.

By the way, I am Rob Zombie fan, but again, Imprint is nothing like one of his movies.

No such thing my friend. Only imaginative filmmaking at its finest. In fact, House of 1000 Corpses is on regular rotation at my house (maybe a few times a year). Methinks it will find its way into this year's Horrorfest as well.

I was thinking of watching that again this year too.

One of the great horror films.

A House of 1000 Corpses?

Why not Devil's Rejects? Das' the better one...

As long as it's not Halloween or Halloween 2 by Rob Zombie.

See, I know my Rob, even when I hate him (love his music though, sometimes).

I love both House and Devil, two superb movies. Halloween movies were not as good, but i still liked them.

House and Devil make a great twosome to watch. Classics. Love that Clown Captain Spalding!!!!!! ha ha ha

Devil's Rejects was very good, but Corpses is a masterpiece. I own them both on Blu-Ray. Who knows, maybe another Halloween night double-feature with both of them. As far as the Zombie Halloween movies are concerned, I thought the first one was very good. Especially when we meet Michael Myers as a kid. Fabulous acting job. Part 2 was merely satisfactory. I liked it, but it certainly had its flaws.

I was actually gonna comment on your username and Zombie's music but you took care of that for me.

12. Dark Water (2002) - Rating 1/5 - What a stupid movie with good trailers. I can't count how many times I checked the remaining time and considered hitting the eject button. Very slow moving and did not really build anything in the process, then when I was hoping for the smack in the face payoff, nothing.

I agree with yankeeman and Apollo and actually saw House of 1000 Corpses for the first time last year. With the exception of Sheri moon whatever being annoying as all hell it was a great movie and is in regular October rotation at my house now. I also enjoyed his take on Halloween, not on the level of the original obviously but I felt it made Michael scary again and enjoyed the childhood backstory. The second one was terrible and should have all copies purged from existence.

1. Return of the Living Dead 1985 - Rating 3/5.
2. Man Bites Dog - Rating 3/5
3. An American Werewolf in London - Rating 5/5
4. Hostel - Rating 4/5
5. Amityville Horror (2005) - Rating 3/5
6. In The Company of Wolves - Rating 4/5
7. Se7en - Rating 5/5.
8. Splice - Rating 1/5
9. Nightmare on Elm St. (2010) - Rating 2/5
10. The Midnight Meat Train - Rating 4/5.
11. The Exorcist (1973) - Rating 5/5
12. Dark Water (2002) - Rating 1/5

12. Don't Look Now
This brilliant movie plays more like an off-kilter drama than an outright horror movie. A couple loses their young daughter in a drowning accident, so they go to Venice to get away from the past, but the past has a way of finding them anyway. Things just aren't quite right, weird characters, strange sounds and the maze-like streets of Venice contribute to the atmosphere. Like "Jacob's Ladder" you're never quite sure of what you're seeing, but a thick sense of unease and dread pervade the entire movie. This is a slow-burn movie that rewards the patient viewer with genuine chills. I don't want to spoil the ending but it is regarded as one of the scariest horror movie moments in the history of cinema.

I agree with you about H2, the theatrical version, but I thought the Director's Cut was much better than most folks give it credit for.

****SPOILER WARNING****

They did such a great job with the effects and kill scenes up to the ending, and then had a very non-scary let down ending as Freddy simply turns invisible and disappears in some balls of light.

I'm not opposed to the very end when the kids drive off, although that seems like a spur of the moment decision that was not necessarily well executed either.

Just watched the Un-Rated Bluray of The Last House On The Left. A true classic rape/murder/revenge movie, done very well. It could have been a little shorter, but overall is an excellant movie. It makes you feel great during the revenge scenes, you can feel the rage as the revenge is taking place.

For those who dont like the very end of the movie, and say it couldnt happen, well remember early in the film the microwave had a problem and the guy was working on the catch. A problem there might allow the machine to do what it did at the end with the door open.

Overall, this is a great watch.

My list so far, with ratings on a 1-10 scale:

1 - Grotesque - 9+
2 - MOH Haeckels Tale - 5
3 - MOH Jenifer - 7
4 - MOH Pick Me Up - 5
5 - Murder-Set-Pieces - 7+
6 - MOH Dance Of The Dead - 4
7 - MOH The Screwfly Solution - 5
8 - MOH Right To Die - 7
9 - Underworld - 9++
10-The Last House On The Left - 9++

Last House on the Left was pretty good, the rape seen was tough to watch (for me) but it really made it seem very real and brutal which made the revenge that much sweeter. I think Storm Warning still takes the cake for rape or attempted rape revenge with that teethy soda can bit... yowza!
post #859 of 9795
Kenobi, have you seen Chaos? That one really has a brutal rape scene of two women getting raped. I have seen a bunch worse then The Last House On The Left in my opinion. Base Moi (or however you spell it) i feel has a wild very realistic rape scene with two women getting raped, and of course now i am drawing a brain-drain and cant think of the others, but there are others. I am just talking about the rapes in the movies, i am not necessarily talking about rape/revenge movies like I Spit On Your Grave which i like.

People always site Irreversible, and then there is Deadgirl which is a very interesting concept.

I feel the most bizarre rape concept ever is the movie HEADER, and i intend to watch HEADER this month, and probably Deadgirl too.

I havent seen Storm Warning.

I haven't seen Chaos yet, is it good? I think Last House on the Left was effective partly because it drew you in and created some connection to the victim. Deadgirl was out there but I'm not sure I'd thought of that in the same light. I've yet to see Irreversible but I hear it's a doozie.

If you have room on your list this year Storm Warning is worth a watch, in fact I think there is a thread on it here and I know a couple others posted comments on it maybe in this thread. Here's the trailer:

CHAOS is actually a remake of the first LAST HOUSE. And, personally, I feel that CHAOS makes the official remake of LAST HOUSE seem like MARY POPPINS. CHAOS may also be the most nihilistic movie I've ever seen. No redemption for no one, no how!

Usually people are opposed to the very end, which I think is actually a very good ending because it's open ended and allows for interpretation. As in, it could be Nancy's or her mother's dream. If you listen to their conversation, I think there's clues that it's her mother's dream (probably her one last dream before Freddy executed her in real life). It's a great final touch, because it lets the audience know that Freddy is still out there, and is hidden in form. Check out the alternative ending if you have the Blu-ray.

As far as the invisible balls thing, I'm certain that you know that it had a purpose I guess (wasn't just for effect). I believe it was trying to resemble Nancy finally gaining enough will power to turn her back on him which simply drains him of his energy (hence the blue energy orbs).

I guess that part's a little cheesy, but at-least it makes sense. If you enjoyed it, check out 3 and 4 as it kinda toys with energy, powers, mythos, effects, and of-coarse humor.

ANOES is one of my favorite slashers. That soundtrack alone cannot be toppled.
post #863 of 9795
Kenobi, as Film113 was saying, CHAOS is really super brutal, it makes most rape movies look mild.

Chaos is one of the wildest dvds i own.

As to Irreversible, most people think its really brutal and hard to watch, but i didnt find it that way, i didnt care for it, but i am in the minority, maybe i should watch it again.

Thanks for the trailor on Storm Warning, looks good.

Yankeeman- did you watch MoH Family yet? I'm telling you man, it's the best one.

I almost started to watch Instinct, but it was getting too late. I'll probably hit it up tonight.

Is that the one with George Wendt? First i thought it was with John Goodman, then I was thinking John Candy, but i think its Georeg Wendt. I really dont remember it, but I now seem to think i have it in my collection, i will check, and if i do, i will watch it within a couple of days.

The other one is Imprint, you wrote Instinct above. Its really worth a watch. I will tell ya, its powerful at times, it was actually a banned show even on the cable network.

Darthrsg, i will look into Act of Vengeance, not familiar with it.

edit: i see i do have Family, and will watch it as i said within a few days, thanks.

I can just imagine what people will think if they don't realize the context of your reference and take it for face value.
